Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for a conference. Rooms are large and modern, I was on the 12th floor with amazing views of the city and Harbour Bridge. When I checked in the lady at the front desk was a bit gruff but everyone else was fantastic.
I would highly recommend this hotel if you're staying around Darling Harbour or want to be close to the Casino.

Stayed here for 1 night being a Monday night to go to a meeting and a show. Paid $400+ for a part harbour view and buffet brekky. I thought the use of "harbour view room" was exaggerated. You had to search for the view. Wasn't a bad stay, it was mostly for the location that we stayed. Wouldn't be at the top of my list of places to stay again. Unless we were having a big night out. Buffet was brilliant and so were all the staff that we encountered. Part of the deal that we got was 2 free drinks at the bar. Long story short, there was a mix up and they ended up sending us 2 x drink vouchers that we will more than likely not use in the next 12 months. But it was good that they chased us up about it.

We secured a room via a " mystery" hotel booking and are do glad we did! Check in was quick, the staff were attentive and friendly. We were given an upgrade and very much appreciated the wonderful city views! The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. Bed was great - very comfy. Whilst the room prices might usually be more than we would usually pay fir a night we feel it would be well worth it and fully intend to return. I have nothing negative to say. Thanks!

Éxceptional service at this motel everywhere from the moment your alight your car,to the reception ( thanks Han),the very helpful concierge and the friendly yet discreet cleaners.Nothing is to much trouble.
Large and spotless rooms that are very well presented.Has a day bed but probably could have done with a 2 seater lounge (plenty of room) in case you have guests around.
Stunning heated pool and spa,gym.
We recieved a complimentary upgrade to a harbour bridge view room, just beautiful.
We would love to come back again.

Room Tip: Harbour facing rooms are the way to go if you like bright lights.

Had two nights here in early August, got the room for $159, in my opinion a bargain in Sydney. Bed was a little hard for my liking, some May like it. The baked Nee York cheesecake was as good as any I have had outside of NY.


Not sure you could rely on it, but even the crisps table was kind :).

Would stay here again.

I stayed here last week for a few days with my friend in a 2 bedroom apartment. I have said this before about the astral towers and the star. The rooms need renovating…They were extremely clean and well presented but the rooms need updating. Nothing exciting about them but a bed to sleep in. If the decor is not a bother to you than by all means stay here as the rooms are very clean, and you can not beat the location of the star. Restaurants galore downstairs from fine dining to basic take away or cafe. We skipped the fine dining this time and ate at the restaurants in the casino mostly asian, cheap and wonderful food and great service.

Room Tip: We found the only night that was noisy was Saturday night, a lot of young people partying on balconi...

Fantastic. Hotel! The rooms were very spacious and luxurious and the balcony had a fantastic view of Sydney. Harbour, Darling Harbour and Sydney Tower. Service was great and friendly. The Pool was mindblowing, probably the best pool I've ever seen at a hotel. I'd recommend swimming in it at night for the full experience.
